    ---------------
    Some of the information here comes from the instruction manual provided with

    ------------
    The XAM is an Urbz all-in-one pager/personal assistant/cellphone. XAM stands
    for "eXchange, Access, Messaging."  To open it and access its many functions,
    press the X Button.
    
    Phone
    -----
    Call other Urbz to plan your social life, get some yummy take-out from Take
    China, or call the fire department to douse your unintentional infernos.
    
    Messages
    --------
    Review text messages from other Urbz to stay in the loop of what's happening
    around the City.  Your XAM stores the latest 20 messages.  When it rings,
    push the X Button to go straight to the latest received message.
    
    Inventory
    ---------
    View the goods and gadgets your Urb has acquired and place them in your
    apartment or in the smaller rooms you have in each district.  You can sell
    these items at shops when they're soooo last week.
    
    Relationships
    -------------
    See a summary of your network friends and enemies.  Positive numbers indicate
    good relationships and negative numbers indicate bad relations.
    
    Goals
    -----
    This critical hub of info in the XAM shows a map of the City, your goals per
    districts, statistics, and what's left to unlock.
    
    Customize
    ---------
    You can change your XAM's style too. Collect different skins and ringtones.
    
    ---------------
    3.3--Reputation
    ---------------
    Reputation is the key to everything - it gets you into the VIP Rooms and
    midnight parties, unlocks other districts and new apartments and determines
    your influence over other Urbz. Your reputation is based on all of your
    relationships, which you can see at the XAM's relationship panel.
    
    As your rep increases, you can visit more of the City on the subway.
    Relationships decay over time so make sure you respond to your friends when
    they're paging you on your XAM!  Increased rep also leads to higher rankings;
    the highest you can reach is Superstar.  As your rep increases, this is
    reflected in your environment, too.  Not only will you be invited to
    exclusive parties, but you'll see your face on posters around town and other
    Urbz changing their attire to be more like you.
    
    You also gain rep by completing goals. When your Urb's rep increases, a
    reputation moment occurs highlighting anything you've just unlocked, such as
    another district.  You also may get XAM messages from friends telling you
    what is now unlocked.  The Goals screen in your XAM tells you what goals you
    still need to complete and what had already been accomplished.
    
    A list of reputation points and what they earn you is listed in The Districts
    & Reputation Points, Section 4.2.
    
    ------------------------------
    3.4--Overview of the Districts
    ------------------------------
    There are nine Districts in the City, each with its own distinct style. Your
    first district choice aligns your Urb's personality with the locals so you
    can make friends quickly.  Each District has a set of goals which you must
    complete, people with whom you must socialize in order to increase your rep,
    and its own VIP room.  VIP rooms are guarded by bounces who will not let you
    in until you have a high enough rep and proper attire (which changes with
    each District).  VIP rooms are worth the effort, though, because it is here
    that Darius gives you Power Social items, which can boost your relationships
    if used correctly.  There are also several need-satisfying items in each VIP
    room.
    
    ------------------
    3.5--Jobs & Skills
    ------------------
    Each district has a different job your Urb can take on.  Jobs provide a
    change to earn Simoleons and learn social moves.  Each job has three levels.
    To start a job, look for a floating Simoleon sign.  Each job has three
    objectives you must complete in order to be paid (e.g., staying
    cheerful/awake, keeping the area clean, and producing the product). 
    Producing the product includes tasks such as mixing drinks, posing for
    modeling pictures, or rolling sushi.  Each is done through a mini-game where
    you must push certain patterns of buttons (there is a tutorial available
    before you start each game).  Your boss will provide you with hints as to
    what you needs attention as you work.
    
    Once you have successfully been paid for one level, you may attempt the next
    level.  The second level adds the objective to socialize with the customers.
    The third level adds in the task of keeping the janitor happy.  You must
    switch to him and keep his motives up, while doing the other tasks you did
    for the previous levels as well.  Each time you complete a level of a job, a
    new social move becomes available to you.
    
    Before you may attempt a higher level, however, you must have certain skills.
    The three skills that are required are "Artistic," "Mental," and "Physical."
    The max that you may have of each is 30 skill points.  There are skill
    building items that you may purchase once your rep is high enough.  The skill
    building items increase your skill to 10, but then you must purchase an
    upgrade item from the store, which is also unlocked by increasing your rep.
    Each item can be upgraded twice, and the items are used by repeatedly
    pressing the A Button.
    
    ----------
    3.6--Needs
    ----------
    Urbz have basic needs that you must maintain to keep them in top form.  The
    overall level of your Urb's needs affects their mood and everything they do.
    Keep their needs met and their mood will follow.  Watch the need meters on
    the panel in the lower left of the screen.  Green needs are currently
    satisfied while red needs attention.  Flashing needs are more critical and
    require immediate attention or your Urb suffers the consequences.  There are
    five needs:
    
    Bladder: If you don't find a toilet for your Urb to relive themselves, they
    may have an accident.  An accident will lead to lower hygiene, and you'll
    also receive a fine from the police if you have an accident in public.
    
    Hygiene: If your Urb is a bit stinky, you should find a shower.  If you're in
    a pinch, though, try repeatedly washing their hands in a bathroom sink or
    even a fire hydrant.  Your hygiene decreases quickest when your Urb is using
    the toilet so make sure to wash your hands afterward.
    
    Hunger: To fill this need, find some grub for your Urb.  Actual meals are
    most satisfying (from a buffet table or take-out Chinese), but a vending
    machine snack will also do the trick.
    
    Fun: Urbz can have fun by themselves or by joining other Urbz in an activity.
    Find a stereo and boogey down to get your Urb smiling again.  There is always
    some type of fun to be had in each District, but sometimes it's only found in
    the VIP room.
    
    Energy: Urbz are supposed to get 8 hours of beauty sleep a night, but your
    Urb can be reenergized by a quick nap or a cup of espresso as well.  Try
    taking a nap in the morning or afternoon so they can party all night-each
    District has a bed for your Urb's use.  
    
    -------------
    3.7--Shopping
    -------------
    There are two types of shopping available in the game: shopping to outfit
    your Urb's style and shopping for furnishings for improve the districts and
    apartments.  
    
    Clothes set your style and affect how other Urbz relate to your Urb.  Spend
    your hard-earned cash wisely to fist blend in and then eventually start
    driving the trends for other Urbz to follow.  Each district has a speciality
    clothing store with unique merchandise.  To locate the store, look for a
    yellow jacket above a building.  Clothing shops offer everything you Urb
    needs to refine their appearance according to the district the shop is in.
    Your Urb can purchase shirts, pants, skirts, shorts, shoes, hats, glasses,
    tattoos, jewelry, piercings, and decals for certain shirts.  You can also
    makeover your Urb's hairstyle, make-up, or facial hair.  I would suggest
    purchasing and/or changing into clothes that reflect the District's style
    immediately upon entering the District, as it helps your interactions to go
    better with other Urbz.  When you have a selection of clothes, you can change
    among what you own by using a wardrobe (available in the Districts or
    available to be purchased and placed in your apartment) or by going back to
    the store.
    
    Select an item you like and press the Y Button.  The item appears on your Urb
    and you can choose to purchase it (by selecting the X Button) or cancel it (B
    Button) and try something else.
    
    Besides clothes, you can buy furniture and cool objects for your apartment or
    to furnish the smaller rooms you have in each district.  In fact, you can
    customize each district by placing items almost anywhere.  From showers and
    toilets to modern art and aquariums, everything helps satisfy your Urb's
    needs in some way.  The cash register in each district sells items unique to
    that part of the City.  Spot the registers by the yellow icon floating above
    them.
    
    --------------------------------
    3.8--Relationships & Socializing
    --------------------------------
    You form a relationship with each person you meet.  The average of all your
    relationship factors into your reputation.  When you have enough rep, you can
    ask other Urbz to become part of your crew.  Once in, you can control any Urb
    on your crew.  Build relationships by using the right social moves on other
    Urbz.  You can also make enemies to earn a bad rep.  Each district has unique
    moves to unlock and use for maximum benefit (listed in the Districts
    section).
    
    Socializing and building relationships is made fairly simple.  The game
    color-codes each move based on how well it will go over by the receiving Urb.
    If a move is likely to be well received, it will be green.  If it is likely
    to be badly received, it will be red.  If the move is just as likely to be
    well received as badly received, it will be yellow.  These colors help you to
    understand the Urb's personality.  For example, a mohawked Urb from Central
    Station will not be very likely to enjoy a Euro Kiss while an Urb from
    Diamond Heights isn't likely to enjoy a headbutt. :) However, just because a
    move worked once with an Urb does not mean it will always work.  The colors
    change based on your relationship with the other Urb.  Also, just because the
    move is successful does not mean it will increase your relationship with the
    other Urb (especially not the 'Act Mean' moves.)  Moves are categorized for
    easier selection:
    
    Network: This group of moves includes different types of talking
    -------
    Talk
    Gossip
    
    Ice Breakers: This group is handy when you have just met an Urb
    ------------
    Joke
    Tickle
    Brag
    
    Greet: This group is used for greeting other Urbs
    -----
    Back Slap
    Buzz
    Euro Kiss
    Fake Punch
    Game On
    Head Butt
    High Five
    Hug
    Knuckle Up
    Panhandle
    Party Shout
    Rap
    Snippy Snap
    
    Act Friendly: These moves can be used in most situations
    ------------
    Air Guitar
    Artsy Dance
    Blow Flame
    Body Bonk
    Bust A Move
    Compare Phones
    Gamble
    Give Back Rub
    HoloXam
    Pub Song
    Skate Trick
    Snap Shot
    Spit Trick
    Vogue
    Join Crew
    
    Act Mean: These moves will help you to quickly make enemies
    --------
    Deafen
    Firecracker Dance
    Hyper Shock
    Mock
    Paparazzi Pop
    Sign Language
    Slam
    Slap
    Tag Face
    Throw Signs
    
    Act Romantic: These moves can result in love between your Urb and another
    ------------
    Bite
    Grab Booty
    Kiss
    Lounge Lure
    Smoke Trick
    Striptease
    Suck Face
    Tango
    Techno
    Tuck N' Hug 360
    
    To see how your Urb stands with other Urbz, open your XAM and open the
    'Relationships' panel.  Depending on how your moves are received and how much
    time you spend with other Urbz, you can have five different types of
    relationships: 
    
    Enemy - A negative score
    Neutral - A score around 0
    Friend - A score above 30
    Best Friend - A score above 50
    In Love - A very high score, after using a romantic move
    
    Power socials also make an impact on other Urbz, some good, some bad.  Power
    socials are most useful when your Urb has a high relationship with another
    Urb, is in a good mood, and is dressed to match the District.  Darius gives
    you a Power Social item each time you make it into one of the midnight
    parties in the VIP rooms, and more items can be earned as your Urb progresses
    through each job level.  Successfully using these items can dramatically
    improve your relationship with an Urb.  Each district has a different Power
    Social item.  Additionally, some Power Socials are necessary for defeating
    villains and completing secret missions.
    
    Power Socials
    -------------
    BlastiKiss
    Chug A Lug
    Mug
    Party Bomb
    Power Chord
    Sk8R TriiQx
    Stink Bomb
    Strobe
    XAMShot
    
    ----------------
    4.0--Walkthrough
    ----------------
    This section includes goals for each district and how to complete them as
    well as where to find each character, secret missions, and the best social
    moves to use in each District.
    
    -------------------
    4.1--The Apartments
    -------------------
    There are three apartments available for your use.  You start in a little
    apartment, and you can move after you unlock the newer, nicer, and larger
    apartments, ultimately ending up in a *very* cool place.  Each apartment has
    the opportunity to unlock a pet, as well, after you add new items to your
    home.  Pets increase your fun and leave you little "presents."  Don't forget
    to pay your rent, or Harry Snivel shows up and takes some of your possessions
    as payment.
    
    -------------------------
    4.11--98th Ave, 3rd Floor
    -------------------------
    You start the game here in a three room walk-up.  will.i.am greets you here,
    introduces you to Darius, and explains about Power Socials.  You receive $300
    to spend, a shower, a refrigerator, and a couch.  A stereo is already placed
    in the apartment.
    
    Goal:
    Add $750 worth of furniture in order to unlock a pet bulldog.  This is pretty
    simple--just add the free items you received at the beginning of the game and
    purchase a few more items in a District.
    
    ----------------------
    4.12--Blankwood Towers
    ----------------------
    In order to unlock Blankwood Towers, you must gain 80 respect points.  Once
    you upgrade, collect all of your belongings from 98th Ave. before moving. 
    This apartment is much larger, and it includes a wardrobe.  
    
    Goal:
    Add $3000 worth of furniture to the apartment, which unlocks a pet cat.  Once
    again, just buy some more stuff in a District after adding everything you
    moved from 98th Ave.
    
    -----------------------
    4.13--Darius' Penthouse
    -----------------------
    The final apartment is Darius' Penthouse, which you unlock by defeating all
    the villains and building Darius' Secret Machine.  This apartment is *much*
    nicer than your previous homes--it comes with a Jacuzzi and a golf machine
    that lets you hit balls off the roof.  Once you've build Darius' Secret
    Machine, you also get permission to use it.  In order to use it, press the A
    Button repeatedly.  
    
    Goal:
    Here your goal is to add $5000 worth of furniture, and this unlocks a pet
    monkey.  Do this by unloading the possessions you moved from Blankwood
    Towers, and purchase more items in a District.
    
    --------------------------------------
    4.2--The Districts & Reputation Points
    --------------------------------------
    The Districts can be completed in any order you choose, and it depends on
    where you chose to start when you created your Urb.  I started on Cozmo
    Street, so that is where this Walkthrough will begin as well.
    
    Since you may choose not to play the game in the same order as I did, I chose
    not to place the amount of reputation points you need beside each goal.
    Instead, here is the list of rep points--it does not change regardless of the
    order in which you play the Districts.

          10 - Gets you past the first bouncer.

    5.0--Cheats
    ------------
    First, a bit of a disclaimer about Cheats.  Cheats make the game much easier,
    but they also remove a certain element of challenge and fun from the game.
    Use them if you wish, but make sure you are really ready to give up that
    challenge before you do.
    
    In order to use the Cheats listed below, you must first perform the "Get
    Shorty" cheat, then perform any other cheats you'd like to use.  Search the
    district until you find the gnome and then choose the cheats you'd like to
    use in the game. (All directions are using the direction pad not the
    thumbpads.  Also, 'L' denotes use of the Left Trigger and 'R' the Right
    Trigger.)

    Maxis & EA Games- For another fun Sim game, which keeps me from working on my
       thesis! :) 
    Elvor & Kilroy6677- For creating walkthroughs for the PS2 and Gamecube
       versions of the game.  I had a bunch of information written down, but I
       had no idea how to organize it.  I followed their outlines (which are very
       similar), which helped me take a tremendous amount of information and put
       it into a logical order.
